Life Vacation


Life Vacation

I have dreamed for you a postcard.  Do you like my spirit animal, my guard, my mountain lion, my brute of strong physique?  As you can see, I have only the essentials: the Full Moon, seven stars and  a cerulean  sky. The clouds, for my ease, have arranged themselves into a line of meringue mountains.  The sea  is robin-egg’s blue and is as still and as calm as can be.   

I am visualising  the Northern Lights for you as I meditate, for they would surely complement the image of this dream.  I am warm, wrapped in a blanket of colour; such sweet fruity stripes which blend with the scene.  I have my wizard staff for comfort and a decanter, like my life, half-full of a magic brew, known only to me (and you). When I awake I shall play my mandolin and serenade you from afar.  The rocks are warm beneath my padded mattress; I am steeped in solitude, all that life has it gives to me.  I wish you were here.

Beautiful and dreamy. I hope to live so to have someone write me a postcard like this and serenade me no matter where.

Popping out from the pictures indeed - perfect accompanying words! I'd put a stamp on the back of this, too!

Gentle and calming, your words paint a scene from fairyland.

The Spirit animal brought to mind the Aeul, ( sp) 'clan' books. Ayla's totum was the lion. Have you read them? I really enjoyed the series though the last few books became a little repetative.

A joy to read, you have such imagination and the words to share.xx
